You are correct! They all have families in Mexico! That is why there is no excuse for not deporting their asses. Even those brought here as children. They have families back in Mexico and that is where they belong. They are not welcome here. We do not want them! They are not valedictorians. They are bad influences on OUR children and a drain on OUR resources. DEPORT ILLEGALS!!!
The majority of the undocumented do not commit any crimes, we work everyday to provide for our families both here and in Mexico.

Illegal aliens need to be put in their place too.
Which would be a jail cell or their home countries.

It never has though marijuana laws often do. Remember "marijuana does not kill people, illegal aliens do."

You say that illegals don't commit crimes and then you say illegals work here in the US. Illegals violate our immigration laws and violate our labor laws. Illegals are a criminals!
When illegals break a law it is not a crime, in their eyes.

A jail cell is expensive. A trip back to their home country would cost taxpayers money and the American Citizens who escort them back would be forced to be away from their family for no good reason.
We didn't ask them invaders to come here. We shouldn't be responsible to get them back where they came from. Every city in the US has a sewage treatment facility and a backhoe. A mass grave down wind from the sewage would be appropriate for the illegal scumbags. The worms that feed off the rotting corpses would be great for the environment.

If agents seized 13,000 pounds of marijuana in one week, I wonder how many tons actually made it across the border? When will America wake up and realize that the only way to stop this is to legalize marijuana so that it can be grown in the US as a cash crop and taxed as such? There's a reason you never hear of Mexican's trying to smuggle cigarettes into the US.

Lots of difference between cigarettes and marijuana.

Yeah, people are being killed over marijuana because its illegal and that makes it very profitable to the Mexican cartels.

Oh, and marijuana has medicinal properties that have been shown to ease pain associated with certain conditions and helps to increase the appetite of chemo patients after their treatments, while cigarettes only help people die sooner than they should.

Can you think of any other differences?

The dissociative resonance in your first sentence proves that marijuana alters synapse function in the brain.

All assertions of marijuana's medicinal properties are dishonest propaganda from people who intentionally mislead young people about the destructive affects of marijuana on perception, hormonal balances, babies in the womb even after women have stopped smoking it, delusional and paranoid ideations. Even if marijuana has some relieving affect on terminally ill patients, so does heroin, crack, meth, etc. Marijuana stagnates the emotional and intellectual development of young people before their brains haven't finished their maturation. Legalization will have the opposite affect from what dopers think, standardizing the dope, therefore continuing the illegal trade... because the addictive personality will always strive for something more to relieve the mental anguish he/she is too cowardly to address.

Remind me of that when you're diagnosed with a terminal illness and you're actually in a position to make that statement and know what you're talking about.

Actually, your opinion on the medicinal value of marijuana is false. Here's a link to a study done by the University of California which contradicts your statement.

The first sentence of your comment shows that you are prone to making statements with no basis or actual knowledge of what you're talking about as I do not use marijuana medicinally or recreationally.

Yes, those that smoke marijuana are usually dope heads and have very little ambition in life.
